But in a way I agree, yes it would have been better if maybe the top 10 apps of 2013 had been available on BB10 at launch in 2013.....
But the OS would still have been buggy... with it's auto reboot feature (which lead to auto returns).
But the Z10 would still have had too small of a battery
But the Q10 & Q5 didn't have a Tool Belt or even keyboard shortcuts.
But BB10 didn't have BIS that made original BB popular in developing markets.
And the Z10 would still have been overpriced for the hardware.
There was simply no hope of them having a success... even with apps, as they had too many other things wrong too.

BB10 can't die. It is healthy and young!

They were willing to buy enough phones at a price that could justify another small production run. Lots of companies will pay for things like that when their internal upgrade process is really slow - just like the Navy paying Microsoft for extended WinXP support because their upgrade process was years behind.

Why would BB spend R&D on a platform they're not pushing to come out with a new device?
Especially when the Passport runs BB10 better than top Androids, so fast and fluid.
Hell my Q10 runs BB10 better than my Priv runs Android. And the Q10 is on a 2011 chipset. I'm really going to miss BB10.

a Droid or iPlonker was never asked for even that all her friends got this lifestyle devices, my daughters main wish for a mobile was PKB and small size anything else was right out of question even now.
I even offeret her a new PRIV, Passport and Classic as choice but no, she insists to stick with her beloved Q10, a Bolt 9900 with OS10 would be her dream device for sure but not full touch or larger than a Q10 :-)
What can I do? can't help it...
Yep she is using this Q10 straight through since 4 years as a teenager and heavy user that must count something, had a Curve 8320 for a few months before that and it was a fight to get her on to BB10 at the time but now, no way she would surrender her Q10.

The most modern BB10 phone out is the Passport, and it's almost 2-1/2 years old at this point..... if they were going to do a new BB10 phone, what are they waiting for?
If they were going to release a new BB10 phone... what's the purpose in TCL hoping to sell to that same small niche market with their licensed phone? There just isn't room for BB10 and BlackBerry Android in that market.

I still have hope that bizzare entities (like the Navy or even more bizarre!) will pay for a small production run of a new BB10 device and that BlackBerry will hopefully take out the blueprints folder for the Z50 to do that.
And yeah, the device would be shipped with OS 10.3.5.
